I desperation I started asking random people on the street for help finding an ATM. Enter Nishimo, a 20 something Tokyo local who had just finished work at 1am. What followed was the single kindest act that I have ever heard of. In her broken English she led me to three ATMs and tried in vain to get them to accept my card, then nearly an hour later we trudged over a kilometre to the central post office for the foriegn bank ATMs. With no luck there she jumped on her mobile and insisted she would sort things out. Next thing I know she gets us in a cab and pulls up at a hotel. Into the Lobby and pays for my room saying the taxi and the room is on her company, puts me in the lift and says goodbye. Unbelievable!!!
